SIGNUP FOR COMMITTEE & CHAIR POSITIONS FOR 2018 - 2019

2018 - 2019 Committee & Chair Volunteer Opportunities

Signup Genius Link

Dear SVMS Parents,

 As part of our school and parish recommendation to participate fully in the Stewardship Program, each family is required to either:

  • Sit on either the Education Council or HSA Executive Board
  • Serve as a Committee Chair for an Education Council or HSA Committee. (Please note that some current Officers/Chairs have elected to retain their positions for next year.)
  • Participate in two or more committees during the school year. If this is your family option, one of these positions must be a Spring Fundraiser Committee.

We have a wide range of opportunities for volunteering!  There is something for everyone -- from year-long participation to short-term responsibilities, and even one-day time commitments.

 

You will notice that Class Parents is no longer listed among the volunteer opportunities.  The teachers have requested that interested parents email them directly when the Class Lists are issued in August.

 

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, particularly if you are new to the school.  We understand the long list can be a little intimidating and we want to help all parents find a fun and comfortable place to donate their gifts.

 

Thank you very much for sharing your time and talent!

Julia Crimmins and Mary Beth Flanagan, 2017-2018 SVMS HSA Co-Presidents
